Bolgheri is so near the sea, and the Gulf of Baratti, that you can breath it in the air. It welcomes the visitor with the double row of beautiful cypresses of a long avenue made famous by the poet and Nobel Laureate Carducci. The “borgo” itself, though small, swarms with wine cellars, taverns, and boutiques. The Costa degli Etruschi offers the visitor a bounty of gastronomical products, beside the high-class DOC red wines that made Bolgheri famous worldwide in recent decades.
Bolgheri will win your heart with its countryside full of vineyards and olive trees, its wonderful twilights, its red Castle and narrow cobbled streets, and the geranium-covered facades of its old stone buildings.
